There totally was a greater-than sign in the subject line.
"We're afraid someone will use this knowledge to attack police officers because they know where we'll be!" Right, because you can't magically call some 3 digit number to summon them to you if you're planning a horrific deed? Some crazed lunatic needs Waze to carry out his dastardly plan? Or is it rather that you don't really want people to know exactly which billboard you're hiding behind at the side of the road to nail people for going 3 mph over the limit?
There's no competition there - I think it'd be fine to be perfectly up front to say something like "While we're screaming across the earth defying gravity at 750 miles per hour, we do not have the ability to provide enough bandwidth so that everyone may watch Netflix. Streaming video sites are not accessible. You don't like it, don't buy it."
Come on, just set QoS so that nobody can stream anything if you're concerned about bandwidth. Don't do some shady impersonation black hat shit to appear that it's not YOU being a bandwidth miser. It's not like there's a whole lot of competition inside each aircraft. AT&T or Verizon isn't following in a jet 2 nautical miles back with a signal booster just asking your passengers to log in to them for a nominal fee.
Yeah, this won't spur me to download them for myself. Nah, not at all.
Now I know it because of you. They look glorious. Maybe not $100 each glorious, but goddammit I think I might be finding out soon.
Mediacom has a partnership with TiVo - I got it 6 months ago and it blew my old "generic" DVR away. Never looking back.
Big grains, BIG grains of salt on the rim.

I have an M Audio Delta 1010LT PCI card, cost me $299 back in the day. Back in the day was 2002. 12 years later it's still crunching up 24 bit signals like popcorn. I just keep transferring it from one build to the next. It's bulletproof. They keep up on the drivers as well. Best piece of studio tech I own.
I'm not saying his case is without actual merit. I just think it's hilarious. I do doubt, however, that beyond being made whole for the purchase price that the plaintiff will be able to demonstrate any actual damages. Mining is speculation, whether it be gold or Bitcoins. You can't attach a price tag to "if only."
"Your honor, the free money generation machine the plaintiff promised me did not generate NEARLY enough free money! Now since I have you here, I'd like to sue Money Tree, Inc. whose shrubbery is also performing woefully."
No kidding - "Shut up before people realize we're SOAKING THEM!"
But we've ALWAYS been at war with Oceania!
I'm all alone. More or less.
